Academics in the Junior Preparatory School
St Benedict’s Junior Preparatory School is a vibrant and stimulating environment which ensures that young boys between the ages of 5 and 9 are given the opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge that will build a solid foundation for their learning path. Boys begin this journey in Grade R where numeracy, literacy and socio-emotional skills are developed. Play and hands on authentic experiences ensures that all boys are continually stretched to reach their full potential. Each following Grade continues to grow each boy into the best version of himself. Grade 1 is such an exciting year as boys experience the wonder and magic of learning to read. The Junior Prep phase ends in Grade 3 when they have gained all the skills necessary to read to learn.
